Two people were wounded in a shooting at a liquor store in Sector 9, police sources said.

Police sources said two armed assailants walked into a liquor store in the inner marker of Sector 9 and began firing at those working at the shop as bystanders ran for cover, some running into nearby shops for protection.

The attackers then drove away in a car parked a few metres away, police sources said.

A policeman with Chandigarh’s traffic police wing was at the market when the incident occurred and made a call to the police control room.

Two people wounded in the incident have been taken to Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research.
